    Have you ever wanted to scream at the wall, "All I need are some words and pictures! How hard can that be??" I hear you! It shouldn't be that hard. Another question: Why should you pay agency-level rates just for a bit of content? Does it always have to be a drawn-out, introspective branding exercise? No, it doesn't. The choice shouldn't be between an overpriced agency and an inexperienced freelancer who misses deadlines and drops appointments. I provide you with a professional service — emphasis on "professional". You wouldn't put up with an independent lawyer or accountant not delivering professional service. You shouldn't have to with your messaging and content, either. →→→ A "Story+Art" Approach Having worked in the agency world and for a wide range of clients, I've seen that most needs boil down to this: Finding someone who can think well enough to come up with the words that hit the mark. Someone who gets it and who can work with graphic designers. You need words and pictures, and someone with the talent to put them together. It really *isn't* that hard, no matter what agencies tell you. • Agency-level writing and editing at independent rates. • Personal service. I work hand-in-hand with you. • The messaging you want is the messaging you'll get. • Able to take technical subject matter and turn it into understandable, engaging material with a natural voice — without sacrificing sophistication. My professional network includes designers and writers I can bring into your project when necessary. Do you care if we work in a restored loft with brick walls, exposed beams, and a French press in the corner? Neither do we. The money we save on overhead means you don't have to pay agency-level fees. We also use AI productivity tools such as Jasper and ChatGPT to further save you time and money. But we don't *depend* on those tools. Every single word passes by my eyes, whether it's written directly by me, someone else, or an AI tool. Quality control is always top of mind. I've developed a reputation for taking highly technical or complicated subject matter and quickly turning it into readily-understood, engaging material. I do this while maintaining a natural voice and without losing the sophistication of the underlying concepts. Another specialty of mine is working with writers whose first language is not English. This is one of the joys of my work! I love having an international dimension to my life, and I have a knack for coaching. My respect is endless for those who can pull off the feat of writing at a high level in a second language. We always have fun. Let's get to work! • Copy editing • Copywriting • Case studies • Developing content based on your subject matter experts • White papers • Articles • Content marketing • SEO and keyword research (I use Semrush) • AI-assisted copywriting with ChatGPT and Jasper • Ghostwriting • Press releases • Media outreach • Content mining • Brand development • Strategic communications • Newsletters • Email marketing • Polishing of translated works • Development of career materials and books for individual professionals • Other — what do you have in mind? Got a weird project? I’m always open to new ideas!

    Proofreading is a crucial step in the writing process that involves reviewing a written text to identify and correct errors in grammar, punctuation, spelling, and syntax. It is an essential part of ensuring that a document is clear, coherent, and free of mistakes. Proofreading goes beyond simply checking for typos; it also involves reviewing the overall structure and flow of the text to ensure it is logical and well-organized. A thorough proofreading process can greatly enhance the readability and professionalism of a document, making it more effective in communicating its message to the intended audience.
